DENVER (AP) - Yoga teaching programs in Colorado would be exempt from regulation under a bill that passed overwhelmingly in the state Senate Friday.

The bill was inspired by news that a state agency planned to expand oversight of the schools, where people learn to become yoga instructors.

The Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools recently sent letters to about 80 yoga studios saying the agency planned to step up regulation of teacher training. The yoga studios opposed the change, which would have come with state inspections and fees of about $2,000.

A bill to exempt the yoga teacher training schools passed 32-1 Friday. The bill now heads to the House.
